TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A pregnant Jessica Simpson on the cover of Elle magazine was apparently too much for some customers of a Tucson Safeway who prompted management to cover it with cardboard.

The April edition features the photo of the singer/actress/fashion designer on its cover with one hand covering an exposed breast and another wrapped around her nude belly.

A spokeswoman for Safeway tells the Arizona Daily Star the manager of the store on East Tanque Verde Road near Catalina Highway received "multiple complaints," so the image was covered with cardboard to block any parts that might be offensive.

The Star reports a walk through the store Thursday afternoon didn't reveal any bits of cardboard shrouding Simpson's image. However, the magazines had been turned around.
